A date for the 24-hour tribute to the world-renowned Italian composer, who died on 6 July aged 91, has yet to be announced.

The initiative is among a series being planned by the city's mayor Virginia Raggi in honour of one of Rome's most famous sons.

The mayor has also proposed renaming the capital's Auditorium Parco della Musica after Morricone who was buried on Monday in the city's Laurentina cemetery, following a private funeral.

Rome street artist Harry Greb paid tribute to Morricone with a mural in Trastevere, where the maestro was born in 1928.
